Damaged cars & swarm of US choppers: First footage of rocket attacks on Iraqi facilities housing Americans emerge (VIDEOS)
A group of US military helicopters have been spotted scrambling over Baghdad in the wake of Saturday’s rocket attacks.
Baghdad’s Green Zone, housing the US Embassy and the Balad Air Base north of the Iraqi capital, was targeted by multiple rockets. Some reports say a rocket landed not too far from the US Embassy.
A video posted to Twitter appears to show that one of the rockets caused collateral damage by hitting a house.
There have been no official reports of injuries, but video footage appears to show civilians being injured as a result of the attacks. There appear to be no US military casualties at this time.
The Saturday attacks follow the Friday assassination of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard’s Quds Force Commander Qassem Soleimani in a US drone strike, as well as pro-Iran protesters storming the US Embassy in a siege earlier this week.
